I say:

Nearly – really nearly unmarked.

No fretwear, no fingerboard wear, no bucklerash.  Just awesomeness.

It sounds as good as it looks – I love the way PRS makes guitars, but always end up back with my Gibsons.  This one however is a real temptation – all the playability of PRS and a flippin’ awesome tone.

Harmonics ping of this guitar like there’s no tomorrow.

Flippin’ awesome.

Really distinctive case as shown in the pictures….  some paperwork…  truss rod adjuster….
